DIY Glass Etched Mugs



In my previous post I had shown you the gifts I made for the teachers. So I thought I would share with you some pictures of how that was done. Also please refer to my posts on other etched glass projects I have done, here and here.


First I cut out the image I wanted from contact paper, with the Cameo. No need to use up expensive vinyl especially if its going to get thrown out!


Then I applied etching cream very liberally to the exposed areas with a paint brush. Then just followed the directions on the Armour Etch bottle. Removed the contact paper and rinsed off the cream. 


There you have it sooooo simple and pretty quick to make! The perfect gift for a teacher or for yourself, just add your name or whatever else you like!

 Happy crafting, have a great weekend!
